Scenes From Saturday {3/16}

by Courtney on March 17, 2013

Breakfast date with my bestie, Heather.


A return back to Illium Café, but a new-to-us breakfast menu.


An amazing chai tea latte to start the morning.


Followed by an amazing breakfast of french toast for Heather, scrambled eggs and a whipped banana pancake for me.


A trip to the Farmers Market (the first one since July).


With plenty of fresh bread abound.


Snacks throughout the day (almond and peanut butter are back in my life – thank goodness that was short-lived).


A Mexican dinner had with great friends.



Including a taco salad made by Yours Truly, which I will have to share with you all very soon because it was amazing.


And enchiladas which I have already bought the ingredients for to make later this week.


A birthday cake for Andrea, who celebrated her birthday last week.


Plus brownies made by Mal, both of which were out of this worrrrrld.


Mooners would certainly agree.


And we all got a great big laugh out of “having” to have some milk to wash down all of the decadent chocolate desserts.


The laugh, of course, was that everyone said it was such a “good thing” that the milk was fat-free and organic…you know, because we were all trying to be so health conscious with all that dessert and all. Hey, we found it amusing. Winking smile

Hope you all had a great Saturday yourselves!

Looks like an awesome weekend! I’m loving all that cheese on the taco salad, looks great!

Ohhhh YUM! Those cakes look really good! I totally do the whole “well, I’m drinking a lot of water today so that cancels out the brownie I just ate” thing. It makes sense ;)

Mmm, the enchiladas with the green chilies on top look great! I think I’d die if I could have some of that fresh bread too. Yum!

I’m really looking forward to the farmer’s market reopening here again too! I love strolling around there on Saturday mornings picking up produce for the week.
I’m always excited for that salad recipe–we are all about Mexican food at our house.

It sounds like you had a fabulous Saturday filled with good people and good eats! It doesn’t get much better than that!

I can’t wait to see the taco salad recipe. It sounds and looks super delicious. I am sure that pairing it alongside those enchiladas was perfect!

Wow, what a day of awesome eats! That cake looks amazing. And adding the healthy milk totally negated all of the fat and calories. ;)

I can’t get enough of Mexican right now. I could seriously eat it every day of the week. And thanks a lot, now I want banana pancakes! (;

I’m absolutely drooling over that cake. If I get something that tasty for my birthday cake tonight then I will in pure bliss.
